ABOUT TOPOLOBAMPO

Rick and Deann Bayless opened Topolobampo in 1989, a few years after opening Frontera Grill. The two restaurants were designed to have the same front door, but that would be one of the few things they would share. If Frontera rocks and claps, Topolo slinks. She is the quiet, sleek, classy sister. She’s also the more daring one.

Topolo’s food has always been contemporary, and it becomes more so every year. Now  30 years old, our dinner menu is divided not into appetizers and entrees but rather into two chef-selected tasting menus – the five- or seven-course “Topolo Classics” and showcase seven-course “Perfect 7” experience.
